KSTAR Nurse Participant Comments

It is my pleasure to report I found the KSTAR Program and the KSTAR Team to be a very professional learning environment. I found the program to be challenging as well as an overall positive experience. I would like to give special thanks to Walter, Angie, Debbie and Professor Hutton for guidance, advice and for assisting me to a successful outcome. I would also like to thank the Texas Board of Nursing for providing me this opportunity.

The program was excellent! The staff are positive and supportive. The simulation exercise was stressful/challenging in a good way. The instructors care about what they are teaching and are enthusiastic. I have incorporated some of the feedback and advice they gave me into my daily practice, e.g., the electronic drug reference app they recommended for android/iPhone, I now use every day I'm at work. Some of the advice I was given on medication safety I use today. I view the KSTAR program and its instructors in high regard and would recommend the program to anyone looking to improve their skills.

Entering into the KSTAR nursing program sounds scary and can be a bit intimidating, but with patience, asking a lot of questions and reading, you will be successful. Everyone in this program is here for your success. You will be successful. Thank you to everyone for their help and commitment to making this program a success and helping nurses like me who have been disciplined and need remediation feel welcomed and respected. This ordeal has been a difficult process, but I am grateful for the learning experiences and the challenges. I have become a better person and nurse. Thank you.

This program is indeed an effective tool to improve nursing skills. I received top of the line encouragement from staff. I communicated with KSTAR team any questions or problems in order to be successful. The program was challenging and designed to improve safety in nursing. I walk away from this program a better prepared nurse than when I started. Anyone fortunate to be in this program will find everything they need to know to pass this course in the materials provided to study. I would say to everyone in this program if you apply yourself, read and meditate, look at every video, practice everything you learn in your current field of nursing, it will impact your skills as a safe and effective nurse for yourself and patient. I truly thank everyone at KSTAR who interacted with me during this successful experience.

The program was very effective for me. It refocused my practice and allowed me to relearn materials I had forgotten from not using on my daily work routine. I enjoyed the experience and feel I have bettered my career and refocused my attention to provide the best care I can for my patients. For any nurse who participates in the program, I would recommend taking this course very serious. It is a great opportunity to go back to basics and learn so many things we take for granted. It helped me open my eyes and see how I should be working every single day while delivery nursing care to any and all patients. I would recommend taking a lot of notes, be proactive and do a lot of reading, research and practice tests/quizzes. It is amazing how much more knowledge you can obtain by making this a regular practice. Also read and review the NPA and the BON rules and regulations frequently. Lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help. We as nurses don't like to ask for help. At KSTAR, every time I called or emailed with questions or concerns, I would always get an answer immediately which would ease my stress and tensions. I am very satisfied with my participation in the KSTAR program. Thank you very much for all your help and guidance throughout the program.
